control after revelation that is u.s. may have spied on german chancellor angela merkel. nsa apparently bugging her phone calls, part of a secret program monitoring dozens of world leaders. the white house says president obama was unaware of the program for nearly five years until it was uncovered over the summer during an internal review by the administration. the nsa denies a report that the president was briefed years ago by the head of the agency releasing this statement. general alexander, he is the head of the nsa, did not discuss with president obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving german chancellor angela merkel nor as he ever discussed alleged operations involving chancellor merkel. news reports, caming otherwise, are not true. so let's talk about it with nina easton, senior editor and washington columnist for "fortune" magazine and fox news contributor. joe trippi was howard dean's presidential campaign manager. he is a fox news contributor. nina, the question is, i guess, you know, if the president didn't know about this, when did he know about it?

. outfront, coming out swinging. finally someone in the administration defends the nsa spying a allies, including world leader's cell phones. the director of national intelligence james clapper and the chief of the nsa, keith alexander, testified before congress and their defense was clear and aggressive. >> do you believe that the allies have conducted or at any time, any type of espionage activity against the united states of america, our intelligence services, our leaders or otherwise? >> absolutely. >> there has not been a mass casualty in the u.s. since 2001. that's not by luck. they continue to tray. it is the great members in the intelligence community, our military, our law enforcement that have stood up and said, this is our job. >> defending themselves with passion and conviction which up to this point we hadn't seen much of in material of defense. jim shuuto watching today. what were the revelations at the hearing? >> you got the sense that they were just waiting to have the chance to push back like this. and they pushed back very strong. first on spying. both clapper and al

everybody. i think it's because of nsa surveillance. i think it's because of syria and the problems related to that. i think when you put all of these things together, people are looking at the president and saying you know, you're not fixing the problems. >> i think one of the problems, too, has been something the republicans have pushed and pushed it subtly for once, and that is the whole idea that he didn't know anything about anything. republicans have put that, you know, you bring up benghazi, what did you know, when did you know it, you bring up did he understand what was going on with the website. well, no, he really didn't know it. so did he know we were spying on our closest friends, well, no, the president didn't know that. i think it gives people this uneasy sense. we're already in uneasy times economically. obama care just superimposes itself over that and people thinking something that we talk about at my kitchen table is changing here, and that's important. it's not some place far away. it's right here. then you add on top of that the sort of president that republicans say is

the military death benefits being held back. a story we're going to cover in a little bit, nsa listening to world leader phone calls, didn't know about that. is it possible or conceivable that president obama could be out of the loop on some of these big item sns. >> it's conceivable to me he could be out of the loop on any one of them. but it's hard to believe he wouldn't have known about any of them, any of these ones they said he didn't know about. we've been given to believe this is a very bright, very curious man who cares about policy details, grasps without difficulty and asks without questions. the picture that emerges from the array of things he was not in the loop on was a more disengaged president leaving it all to others. in which case it's imperative that you pick good others. it's questionable whether he has. >> all right, brit. thank you. >>> the health care fiasco is playing a big role in the contest for governor. just how important that may be. >> hold back the tide of obama care. i need your vote on november 5th. >> crunch time in virginia's race for governor and republ
in the nsa and the rank and file in the nsa who do extraordinary work on behalf of every american season and allies in keeping them safe. the issues that are part of the review to look at how we can better balance our security needs, and the security needs of our allies against the real privacy concerns that we all share, and as i noted at the top, there has been extraordinary change, technological change in the last 10 or 20 years and certainly in the last ten or so years since 9/11, that has affected i mean, the whole world in the way that we transmit and gather information. and that includes, that has brought about changes in the way and developments in the way that we gaerth intelligence and changes in the way that those in the world want to do harm to americans and their allies operate. that has meant we have had to adapt. as we have adapted and as we adapt, we need to make sure as the president is insisting that we keep a balance that protects our security and takes into account our real privacy concerns. >> sir, revelations of this eavesdropping, have caused damage with our allies
that president obama knew that the nsa was eavesdropping on german chancellor angela merkel's personal phone calls. this as we hear of another bombshell. the nsa reportedly monitored 60 million phone calls made in spain in just a single month. here's jay carney just a few moments ago talking about that scandal. >> was the president kept out of the loop about what the nsa was doing? >> josh, what i can tell you is two things.ibz first, i'm not going to get into details of internal discussions. but the president clearly feels strongly about making sure that we are not just collecting information because we can, we do not and will not monitor the chancellor's communications. today's world is highly interconnected. and the flow of large amounts of data is unprecedented. innovation is going to continue. if we're going to keep our citizens and our allies safe, we have to continue to stay ahead of these changes. >> fox news digital politics editor, host of "power play," joins me now. he used a favorite word of mine. executive producer jen williams, this is juicy stuff, chris, right? >> it's discomf
revelations about nsa surveillance. thanks to edward snowden, we now know the nsa monitored the phone conversations of 35 world leaders. that includes merkel, who is object sensibly a u.s. ally. merkel was reportedly livid about the surveillance and called president obama to register her displeasure. but the spying may have begun as far back as 2002, the early days of the bush administration, before merkel even became chancellor. and that timeline makes this clip from 2006 even creepier! i can't help but wonder if bush had gotten a tip from the nsa about how merkel mentioned on the phone she enjoyed the occasional back rub. here's the craziest part about this whole thing, it's not that we were tapping the german chancellor's phones, which is not necessarily that surprising, even though it involved an ally, it is that, apparently, president obama did not know we were doing it, according to a report from the "wall street journal" out today. the spying on merkel was part of the massive surveillance operation put in place by president george w. bush after the september 11th attacks, which
were bugging the phones of world leaders. officials say the nsa has so many eaves droppings under way it wouldn't have been practical to brief him on all of them. the president who has perfected the art of leading from behind is constantly claiming he has no knowledge of what's going on regarding anything that could harm his flawless reputation. to remind the viewers of the many time it is president has been kept in the dark regarding scandal and controversy we have a little something to help jog your memory. take a look. >> the president said he was angry about this. do you know when he first knew there was a problem? >> well, i think it became clear fairly early on -- the first couple of days. >> not before october 1. >> no. >> there was no concern at that point from the white house or hhs? >> i think we talked about having testing going forward. >> i can assure you that i certainly didn't know anything about the i.g. report before it was leaked through press -- through the press. >> i first learned about it from the same news reports i think most people learned about this. i think
